griz-chasinggoldenhour

All Good records kingpin GRiZ is at the top of his game right now and Chasing the Golden Hour proves it. Lots of collaborations and melodies with that GRiZ sax that just oozes summer, he has out done himself on this one.

In his own words; “I wanted to recreate the carefree good vibes you feel when it’s just about sunset on the perfect summer evening and everything is the most beautiful shimmering tint of gold. Chasing The Golden Hour is that magical moment, it is the cool breeze against your back, it is sweet summer swagger in music form. Enjoy the chilled out vibes :)”

Must Hear Artist Album: Mat Zo – Self Assemble

matzo-self

Here is an extremely solid sophomore release coming from the eclectic Mat Zo. He gives us an amazing Electro House track, one solid Trance blend and a handful of fresh glitchy breaks all tied together with some beautiful transition tracks as what he describes is a sound track for a movie from the future that hasn’t been created.

Sadly enough Mat says that this will be “his last send off” and will not be making anymore electronic tracks due to the EDM scene holding back his artistic creativity. Hard not to appreciate all the genre defining and breaking tracks he has given us over the years – wishing him the best on his next move.

New Podcast: Nifra – Rebel Radio

After 100 episodes of her radio show “Be Progressed” the Queen of Trance, Nifra, has revamped her show with a new title and feel. It now a bit harder and faster due to the increased focus on trance. Although only 2 episodes in this is looking to be a solid show that’s more than worthy of a free subscription.
